Scope and Sequence

English as a Second Language

Our Fix-it Phonics program has been especially designed for learning English as a second language. It is a structured course that uses the tried and tested Letterland system to teach phonics.

Fix-it Phonics is an all-inclusive, step-by-step programme. It has four structured levels that help children to quickly master all the English letter shapes and sounds as well as reading, writing and communication skills.

Student Books and Workbooks

Multisensory Learning

Each Student Book is packed with interesting scenes to explore, rich in new vocabulary. There are songs, chants, listening and talking activities, too. The Workbooks allow students to master their writing skills and consolidate learning in school or at home. The Workbooks also include stickers and built-in assessment.

Scan to Listen Along

Audio to accompany the Student Books and Workbooks can be streamed online with a mobile or tablet using this QR code. This is a useful feature for teachers and parents. Audio CDs are also available.

Speaking and Listening Skills

The Student Books include topic-based units called ‘Talk time’ to help with oral language skills. At the end of each Unit, there are listening exercises in the Workbooks which can be used to assess a student’s ability.

Reading and Comprehension Activities

The Phonics Readers are integrated into the Student Books and use only the phonemes children know, gradually building in complexity. They also introduce vital high-frequency words. Simple comprehension activities allow you to discuss and share reading experience.

Letter Formation and Writing Words

The Workbooks include write-in activities for practicing letter formation, identifying the initial/medial/final sound in words and then learning to write whole words and sentences.

Step-by-Step Teacher's Guides

Unit Structure

Units comprise of four to five lessons. At the end of each Unit, a Review Lesson allows you to consolidate the learning of letter sounds or spelling patterns, letter shapes and blending and segmenting strategies for whole words. Look out for the rainbow in the in bottom right-hand corner of the products. As the rainbow grows you can quickly identify the Unit across the range of components.

Lesson Plans

Lesson Plans contain detailed information, such as the audio scripts, language to use, answers to questions and teaching tips. Each Lesson Plan contains material for 90+ minutes of teaching but you many want to adjust the pacing depending on the needs of your children.

Lesson Outlines

There are pull-out Lesson Outlines at the front of your Teacher’s Guide. Once you are fully familiar with the lesson structure these Outlines can be used as quick reminder of the steps to cover in each lesson.

Blending and Segmenting Strategies

There are plenty of word building activities with practical advice on how to enrich your teaching. The Sound Slide allows students to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ the sounds as they blend them together to make words.

Assessments and Downloads

Skills Assessments, Unit Listening Tests and Final/Placement Assessments makeup the assessment strand to help you monitor how your students are progressing. Supporting resources to accompany your Teacher’s Guide, including audio, assessment, certificates, lesson planners and much more!
